Online Fundraising

Recognising that “people give to people”, Rapidata’s Online Fundraising service makes it easy to engage in active relationships with your supporters, and turn them into your greatest advocates. Delivered in partnership with Artez Interactive (a global leader in multi-platform online fundraising solutions), Rapidata helps support charities and not-for-profit organisations to create, manage and execute successful online fundraising campaigns.

Your website provides a dynamic environment for delivering key messages and interaction with your supporters. With our help your website can also become a fully functioning and engaging online fundraising tool. You can make donating easy and empower your supporters by providing services for single donations, event registration, personal fundraising pages, and special occasion giving; across desk top, mobile and tablet devices. Our Online Fundraising service provides a module-based approach for creating secure, fully branded web pages, complete with real time reporting so you can monitor progress: Contact us to find out how we can help you with your online fundraising.

Introducing the first event fundraising App that runs entirely inside Facebook!

Unlike all other products that simply link to or from Facebook, our app provides a remarkably different user experience. Running inside means never leaving the familiarity and comfort of your Facebook session. And because our app is also first to be fully integrated on multiple channels, it works perfectly on your mobile, tablet or desktop device! Event participants and their friends can drop in, track progress, share with more friends and donate with one click when it’s top of mind and the moment’s right.

Let your supporters honour a loved one

We know many people make donations to recognise or remember someone special. Our system makes it easy for these generous donors to make in memory or tribute donations online. We offer alternatives to donors: either send a physical card, or use an e-card and save trees

Our Tribute Module includes the following capabilities:

  • Allows a donor to choose from making an in-memory, in celebration, or general donation
  • Unlimited number of forms
  • Mobile-browser optimised
  • Customisable look & feel (header, footer & colours)
  • Custom fields
  • Automatic deposit of funds to charity’s bank account
  • Built in opt-in to charity email & post communications
  • E-cards and printed cards
  • Preset your e-card template or let your donors customise with their own image
  • Suggested gift array
  • Variety of payment options including PayPal
  • Real-time access to your donor data
  • Customisable thank you emails
  • Google Analytics

Large Events

You can manage your complex events with a hassle-free online registration and donation system. Our major event module provides integrated event registration and fundraising supporting personal and team-based fundraising for your events.
If you’ve ever donated to a friend participating in a walk, run, or relay, or registered for one yourself, chances are you’ve already used the Major Event Module. It’s employed by many major North American charities for their events and campaigns.

Possibly our most popular feature, Rapidata lets you manage your walk, run, bike or swim with ease. Turn your supporters into online fundraisers by allowing them to create fundraising pages. They can then ask their friends to donate to your cause using email, Facebook & Twitter. And since Rapidata gives you extensive branding flexibility, your participants and donors will feel safe & secure knowing it is your website not some portal with an unfamiliar look-and-feel!

Major Event Module includes the following capabilities:

Mobile Fundraising

We are proud to announce the addition of two new mobile services to complement your event fundraising and donation pages.

Mobile Fundraising App

The Mobile Fundraising App is an easy way for charities to break into the mobile channel with a fully customisable app for event-based fundraising campaigns. The Mobile Fundraising App is fully branded to match the look and feel of your event allowing your supporters to fundraise whenever they want, wherever they are!

The app allows your iPhone, iPad, iTouch & Android supporters to:

  • Monitor the progress of their fundraising efforts
  • Solicit sponsors via email, Facebook and Twitter
  • Process secure credit card and PayPal donations via the mobile web
  • View and post messages on the message board
  • Add event details to your calendar with one click
  • View a map of your event location
  • View charity profile

You can see how it works by watching a short video from our partners at Artez Interactive:

 Mobile-optimised donation pages

Our donation pages are now fully optimised for mobile viewing which allows donors to complete secure credit card and PayPal transactions on their smart phones.

When your supporters receive an event participant’s solicitation or a general appeal email on a BlackBerry or iPhone, they can click the ‘donate’ or ‘sponsor’ link to be automatically redirected to a mobile-optimised version of the donation page. The Artez system automatically displays mobile donation page every time a mobile browser is detected – the transition is seamless!

For more information on how your organisation can leverage the power of mobile fundraising, please email info@rapidata.co.uk or call us on 01293 601111.

Fully branded, customisable donation pages

If you have a “Donate Now” button on your site, then you need the Direct Donation Module to back it up. Fully customisable, and fully branded for your organisation, Rapidata lets you setup an unlimited number of donation pages quickly. This module helps you build a deeper relationship with your one-time donors by facilitating rich, personalised communication.

You can have a campaign specific donation page that looks different from your general donation page. Or how about creating a donation page dedicated to that great corporate sponsor?

Direct Donations Module includes the following capabilities:

“Fundraise Now” or “Organise your Own” Button for your Website

You may have a “Donate Now” button on your website, but where is your “Fundraise Now” button? Many of your website visitors want to do more than donate, so why not encourage them to fundraise for you? Manage your community events seamlessly, and encourage a diversity of fundraising for your cause. Example include: birthday parties, weddings, golf tournaments, house parties, dance-a-thons, school fundraisers…the possibilities are limited only by your imagination!

Our Artez Personal Event Module puts the power to raise money through 3rd party campaigns into the hands of those supporters – allowing charities to raise more money, without adding to their administrative load.

Purchase

Are you tired of using online shopping systems that refer to your donors as “customers” and your alternative donations as “shopping cart items”? We have a solution for you. Our purchasing technology allows you to sell physical goods (such as teddy bears and coffee mugs), virtual goods (a goat for a poor family in Ethiopia, an incubator for the children’s hospital), or a combination of both. And since we know your ‘shoppers’ are charitably inclined, we allow you to offer a donation top-up just before completing the final click.

You can also use the purchase module for ticket sales. Our system allows you to manage events or meetings that require tickets. We also allow for “zero amount” participants if you simply want to keep track of who is coming.

Our Artez Purchase Module includes the following capabilities:

  • Sell event tickets, merchandise, or alternative gifts
  • Unlimited number of purchase pages
  • Create a description & upload an image for each item
  • Donation add-on option
  • e-Cards for purchased items and/or donation add-ons
  • Email alerts upon completed purchases
  • Customizable look & feel (header, footer & colours)
  • Mobile-browser optimized
  • Custom fields in checkout form
  • Automatic deposit of funds to charity’s bank account
  • Opt-in to charity email & post communications
  • Variety of payment options including PayPal

All Artez modules include

  • Customizable purchase confirmation emails
  • Multicurrency & multilingual options
  • Social media sharing tools
  • Real-time access to donor & fundraising data
  • Google Analytics

“The ability for participants to gain sponsors directly within Facebook has been enormously helpful, as have been the staff at Rapidata.  I shall look to use them for all my events from now on and will recommend to all the charities we support.”
